Source: "Flags to Color from the American Revolution."

On page 13 is the flag entitled the "Bucks of America." The flag's colors are described as "Buff field, letters; white stars; blue canton, scrolls, flourishes; green leaves, grass; brown buck, trunk." And there is a narrative of the flag, as well:
"John Hancock, Governor of Massachusetts, presented this flag after the war to a company of black soldiers for valor. We know little about the Bucks of America; they were among the thousands of black Revolutionary patriots."
It is unclear exactly what the initials "J-G-W-H" stand for above the tree.
